Dr. Jeremy Jay Derksen, DDS
Dr. Jeremy Derksen, owner of New Prague Dental Center, grew up in a small town in Chugiak, Alaska and enjoyed regular trips to his father's dental practice in Anchorage, Alaska. Dr. Derksen graduated from the University Of Minnesota School Of Dentistry where he then enlisted in the United States Air Force to provide dental care for the men and women in uniform who serve our great country. During this time, Dr. Derksen worked in a large dental hospital and had the opportunity to gain additional training in oral surgery, endodontics, orthodontics, and prosthodontics. It was in this hospital where he was blessed with his first set of twins. A few years later upon moving to Minnesota his second set of twins made their appearance into this world.
He has truly enjoyed practicing at New Prague Dental Center the past few years and meeting all the patients of New Prague and surrounding areas. His treatment philosophy is to treat all patients like they were his own family. In his free time, Dr. Derksen loves to spend time with his kids and can't wait to take them all fishing for monster salmon and halibut in Alaska. In the meantime, an occasional crappie and sunfish will have to suffice.
Dr. Derksen continues to improve his skills through continuing education courses and is thrilled to begin offering Invisalign orthodontic treatment to his patients. He volunteers for Give Kids A Smile and one of his goals is to survive two sets of twins while continuing to provide the best possible care he can to all of his patients. He is extremely grateful for and enjoys working with his talented staff at New Prague Dental Center and knows their teamwork and positive attitudes will make every patient's dental visit that much better. The staff at New Prague Dental Center looks forward to seeing all of you and don't forget to tell ALL your friends and family about your visit.
